Upgrading to Web Hosting from Classic Hosting

If you currently use a Classic hosting account, you can upgrade it for free to a Web Hosting account, which offers improved performance. For more information, see Web Hosting Frequently Asked Questions.

Before upgrading your hosting account, we recommend backing up any databases in your account. For more information, see Backing up and Restoring MySQL or MSSQL Databases.

NOTE: When migrating to a Web Hosting account, you cannot switch your hosting account's operating system. However, after the account migrates, you can switch it.
